Anybody got any opinions on these?
I bought some because they were on special offer in Tescos...
I notice from the pack that they claim something like 2Kg per strip....
Anyway, tried stuicking a magazine rack (only light metal) to a wall.
Seemed to stick for a bit and then fell off a few hours later. I think
it might work if you hold the item in place with something else for 24
hours first (they claim u need to do this).
I think we know why they are on special offer :)
2kg per strip doesnt sound much, I think gaffa tape would have similar
hold (please dont gaffa tape anything to the wall and blame me when the
missus goes ballistic )
I think the name "no more thumb tacks" may be in order

I'm sure that between two perfectly prepared surfaces, left for the requisite
length of time that the adhesive will hold, in tension, a 2kg weight. In
shear, not waiting for a full bond and not on the perfect surface I suspect it
will be a lot less.
Also, did the strip come off clean or did is take some of the wall surface
with it, bit of paint, dust, wallpaper?
I'd never rely on a bit of glue on a surface for a load bearing job like that.
(After previously singing the praises of chemical anchors here, I had to
think twice about my wording :-).
